Tuesday, October 23, 2012, 6-8pm
Talk by Eduardo Costa, John Perreault and Tom McEnaney at 7pm
A special night honoring the first "publication" of works created specifically for stereophonic tape.
edited by Eduardo Costa / John Perreault and audio engineered by Alcides Lanza, New York, 1969.
with works by
side 1: Vito Hannibal Acconci, Michael Benedikt, Scott Burton, Ted Castle & Leandro Katz, Eduardo Costa and John Giorno.
side 2: Joseph Ceravolo, Dan Graham, Bernadette Mayer, John Perreault, Anne Waldman, Lewis Warsh and Hannah Weiner.
"The works exist completely in terms of aural phenomenon, rather than in terms of visual systems of signs, thus beginning
a new art of the tape recorder that has in common with written literature the fact that it refers to real language."
Eduardo Costa and John Perreault in An Introduction to Tape Poems, 1969.
